Can a tornado form in a blizzard?
Not in the blizzard itself, no. In some cases the same storm system can produce tornadoes in one area blizzard conditions in another, but these areas will remain separate from one another. For a northern hemisphere system, blizzard conditions are most likely to occur in the northwestern part of the storm while tornadoes and thunderstorms will more likely occur in the southeastern portion.
